Such a grand turnout at the most beautiful estate in Kentwood for Side by Side.  They are changing their branding for their school which provides education and support for under privileged children in Marin County.  Loved being a part of this fundraiser and seeing such good people who truly care.

Family Portrait Photographer in Marin County- Point Reyes Shipwreck, Inverness, CA The Gregors

These charming family portraits were taken in a couple of the most visually interesting Marin County location–the  uber cool Point Reyes Shipwreck in Inverness. So fun being a family portrait photographer and seeing the love between children and their parents.  These images were taken with natural light in an artistic setting.  We played around the bouquet as a prop in these family portraits and had a wonderful time exploring all over Marin County for great locations for a family portrait backdrop!

Bat Mitzvah Photographer in Palo Alto, Bay Area, San Francisco – Ally in Wonderland.

This was the most amazing Bat Mitzvah ever — with an Alice in Wonderland theme, but of course they called it “Allie in Wonderland.”  Just look at these Bat Mitzvah photography!  These mitzvah images were bursting with fun and excitement.  I photographed this with mostly natural light and then used an on camera flash after it got dark. There was a Mad Hatter magician and circus games under red and white striped cabana tents, and a silent disco where everyone was given headphones to tune in and dance to the playlist of their choice. To top it off, the moms did a mob squad choreographed dance surprise for the kids with a hilarious confetti explosion at the end! Booking a fantastic Bar or Bat Mitzvah photographer is so important so you have all these beautiful images as memories or to showcase your images in an album which surely will become a family heirloom!

Wedding and engagement photographer in San Francisco Bay Area. Engagement photo session in Monument Valley looks like a movie…Abigail and Ian.

Here’s the formula for an engagement shoot that looks like film stills from a cool western film full of adventure, intrigue, and romance…

We road tripped for a weekend to Monument Valley — once we were there, we explored Native American reservations, the arches, and had a blast!  Abigail and Ian were going to get married at Viansa Winery but wanted a different feeling for their engagement photography.  As a wedding and engagement photographer in San Francisco I was more than thrilled to get to road trip and take awesome engagement photos in an artistic and editorial way in the red sand dunes.  Such an incredible engagement session as the photos speak for themselves.  Wait until the wedding in Sonoma Valley at Viansa Winery--the heart of wine country!

 

Bar Mitzvah at Congregation Beth Am and JCC in Palo Alto. Zach.

The Bar Mitzvah Services were at the Congregation Beth Am, and the party was at the JCC in Palo Alto. Love being at Bar or Bat mitzvah photographer as it’s all about the kids and then the grown ups become kids again.  It’s a magical coming up age party where imaginations run wild and the theme’s are endless.  Zach is a big sports buff so he wanted his bar mitzvah photos to have an ESPN quality to them.  I think his Mitzvah rocked and he accomplished just that!  FUN was had by all!

Wedding and engagement photographer at Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay. Jessica and Hooby.

So how cool is it to take off for the weekend to celebrate your wedding anniversary and book a photo shoot to document it. That’s exactly what these two did. They flew out from Tulsa, Oklahoma to the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay. We explored the cliffs, the beaches, live oak trees dripping with moss, and hopped on an old 70’s acid tripping bus! Check out these photos from Jessica Nasreddine-Yoon and Hooby’s 4th Wedding Anniversary…They said this was better than photographing their engagement photos session.  xoxo

Enagement Photography with this super cool couple at Sunset and Ocean beaches in San Francisco. I love being an engagement photographer especially when the couple wears wedding attire and wants to be adventurous with their engagement photos!  It’s so fun to go all over Sunset and Ocean Beach in San Francisco taking fun and artistic engagement photos!  I loved when they went for it and got in the ocean.  Best engagement photo ever!

This beautiful day with a lovely couple from Texas was spent at Vintage Estates at The Villagio in Yountville, CA.

 

Gay Wedding photographer at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, Bay Area. Peter and Jared

I can’t say enough about how fantastic this wedding was! I loved everything about documenting Peter and Jared’s amazing day.  We did couple wedding photographs at their hotel and at the Grace Cathedral.  I love photographing same sex weddings as I am honored to be a part of progressive civil right change.  Being a LBGT wedding photographer is one of my favorite things and I am most proud of being to work with these exceptional couples.  They are so positive and have the deepest level of compassion and emapthy.  In perfect SF style, they had a cable car deliver them to their ceremony at the magnificent Grace Cathedral. They prepped for the wedding at the luxurious Scarlet Huntington Hotel, and their reception was at a club so swanky I’m not allowed to mention its name online! Peter’s children were in attendance with their partners, all beaming with happiness for their father. We had so much fun taking photo journalistic style wedding photos of them all at the wedding reception and took some more artistic and stylized wedding photos of the couple around the venue. Food stations were everywhere with every kind of food imaginable. Such a beautiful day full of so much love…Congrats!
